Assisted Living Concepts, Inc. Announces 2 for 1 Stock Split and Initial Quarterly Dividend

MENOMONEE FALLS, WI--(Marketwire - May 2, 2011) - Assisted Living Concepts, Inc. (NYSE: ALC)

Highlights:

--  Adjusted EBITDAR as a percent of revenues increased to 33.8%, up from
    32.3% in the first quarter of 2010
--  Increased average private pay occupancy by 2 and 29 units over the
    fourth quarter of 2010 and the first quarter of 2010, respectively
--  Increased private pay rates by 2.4% over the fourth quarter of 2010
--  Board of Directors declared 2 for 1 stock split and post split dividend
    of 10 cents per share

Assisted Living Concepts, Inc. ("ALC") (NYSE: ALC) reported net income of $5.0 million in the first quarter of 2011, compared to a net income of $3.6 million in the first quarter of 2010. During the first quarter of 2011, ALC recorded "One-Time Items" described below that resulted in an additional $0.4 million of net income. Excluding the One-Time Items, net income in the first quarter of 2011 would have been $4.6 million.

"We continue to strengthen our portfolio of properties by making positive strides in both private pay occupancy and earnings," commented Laurie Bebo, President and Chief Executive Officer. "The first quarter of the year has historically been our most challenging quarter from both an occupancy and expense perspective. We are encouraged that the market has recognized our consistent positive results and driven up our share price. We feel that a two for one stock split will benefit our shareholders by adding liquidity to our stock. We are pleased to report that confidence in our balance sheet and our ability to continue to generate significant amounts of cash has resulted in rewarding our shareholders with an initial quarterly dividend of 10 cents per post split share."

One Time Items recorded in the first quarter of 2011 included a reduction in tax expense associated with the settlement of all issues associated with a tax allocation agreement with a subsidiary of our former parent Extendicare Inc. (now Extendicare Real Estate Investment Trust) ($0.8 million), partially offset by charges associated with a mark to market adjustment for interest rate swap agreements ($0.2 million net of tax) and the write-off of deferred financing fees associated with our refinanced debt ($0.2 million net of tax).

Diluted earnings per common share for the quarters ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 were $0.43 and $0.31, respectively. Excluding One Time Items, diluted earnings per common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 was $0.39.

In addition, to these One Time Items, ALC's Company Conference was held in our first quarter of 2011 as compared the second quarter in 2010. This timing difference resulted in an increase in General and Administrative expense in the first quarter of 2011 of $0.3 million ($0.2 million net of tax) over the first quarter of 2010 or approximately $.02 per share.

Certain non-GAAP financial measures are used in the discussions in this release in assessing the performance of the business. See attached tables for definitions of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR, reconciliations of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR, calculations of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR as a percentage of total revenues (Adjusted EBITDAR and Adjusted EBITDA margins), and non-GAAP financial measure reconciliation information.

As of March 31, 2011, ALC operated 211 senior living residences comprising 9,325 units.

The following discussions exclude the impact of discontinued operations unless otherwise specified.

Quarters ended March 31, 2011, March 31, 2010, December 31, 2010

Revenues of $58.4 million in the first quarter ended March 31, 2011 increased $0.5 million or 1.0% from $57.9 million in the first quarter of 2010 and were unchanged from the fourth quarter of 2010.

Adjusted EBITDAR for the first quarter of 2011 was $19.7 million, or 33.8% of revenues and

--  increased $1.0 million or 5.6% from $18.7 million and 32.3% of revenues
    in the first quarter of 2010; and
--  decreased $1.2 million or 5.5% from $20.9 million and 35.7% of revenues
    in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2011 was $15.4 million, or 26.3% of revenues and

--  increased $1.8 million or 13.0% from $13.6 million and 23.5% of
    revenues in the first quarter of 2010; and
--  decreased $1.0 million or 6.3% from $16.4 million and 28.0% of revenues
    in the fourth quarter of 2010.

First quarter 2011 compared to first quarter 2010

Revenues in the first quarter of 2011 increased from the first quarter of 2010 primarily due to higher average daily revenue as a result of rate increases ($1.1 million) and an increase in private pay occupancy ($0.3 million), partially offset by the planned reduction in the number of units occupied by Medicaid residents ($0.9 million). Private pay rates increased in the first quarter of 2011 by an average of 2.0% over the first quarter of 2010. Overall rates, including the impact of improved payer mix, increased in the first quarter of 2011 by an average of 2.6% over the first quarter of 2010.

Both Adjusted EBITDAR and Adjusted EBITDA increased in the first quarter of 2011 primarily due to a decrease in residence operations expenses ($0.5 million) (this excludes gains and losses on the disposals of fixed assets) and an increase in revenues discussed above ($0.5 million). Additionally, for Adjusted EBITDA only, a decrease in residence lease expense ($0.7 million). Residence operation expenses decreased primarily due to reduced salary expense and property taxes. Staffing needs in the first quarter of 2011 as compared to the first quarter of 2010 decreased primarily because of a decline in the number of units occupied by Medicaid residents who tend to have higher care needs than private pay residents. In addition, general economic conditions enabled us to hire new employees at lower wage rates. Property tax expenses were lower due to successful appeals of assessments in a variety of states. General and administrative expenses were unchanged as savings associated with upfront costs associated with transitioning payroll and benefits from a third party vendor to in-house in the first quarter of 2010 were offset by expenses associated with our 2011 Company Conference. In 2010, the Conference took place in the second quarter.

First quarter 2011 compared to the fourth quarter 2010

Revenues in the first quarter of 2011 were consistent with revenues in the fourth quarter of 2010. Higher average daily revenue as a result of rate increases ($1.3 million) was offset by two less days in the 2011 quarter ($1.2 million) and the reduction in the number of units occupied by Medicaid residents ($0.1 million). Private pay and overall rates increased in the first quarter of 2011 by an average of 2.4% over the fourth quarter of 2010.

Decreased Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR in the first quarter of 2011 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010 resulted primarily from an increase in residence operations expenses ($0.7 million) (this excludes gains and losses on the disposals of fixed assets) and an increase in general and administrative expenses ($0.3 million) (this excludes non-cash equity-based compensation). Additionally, for Adjusted EBITDA only, a decrease in residence lease expense ($0.2 million). Residence operations expenses increased primarily from increases in utility expenses resulting from normal seasonal fluctuations partially offset by other administrative expenses. General and administrative expenses increased primarily as a result of expenses associated with our Company Conference held in the first quarter of 2011. In 2010 the Conference was held in the second quarter.

Stock Split

On May 2, 2011, the Board of Directors approved a stock split of its Class A and Class B Common Stock at a ratio of 2 to 1, with a planned effective date of May 20, 2011. Accordingly, as of the effective date, each share of issued and outstanding Class A and Class B Common Stock will be converted into two shares of Class A and Class B Common Stock, respectively. The stock split will be effected by filing a Certificate of Change to ALC s Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of Nevada.

Share Repurchase Program

In the first quarter of 2011, ALC repurchased 24,600 shares of its Class A Common Stock at a cost of $0.8 million and an average price of $32.42 per share (excluding fees).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income from continuing operations before income taxes, interest expense net of interest income, depreciation and amortization, equity based compensation expense, transaction costs and non-cash, non-recurring gains and losses, including disposal of assets and impairment of long-lived assets (including goodwill) and loss on refinancing and retirement of debt. Adjusted EBITDAR is defined as Adjusted EBITDA before rent expenses incurred for leased assisted living properties. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR are not measures of performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP. We use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR as key performance indicators and Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR expressed as a percentage of total revenues as a measurement of margin.

We understand that EBITDA and EBITDAR, or derivatives thereof, are customarily used by lenders, financial and credit analysts, and many investors as a performance measure in evaluating a company's ability to service debt and meet other payment obligations or as a common valuation measurement in the long-term care industry. Moreover, ALC's revolving credit facility contains covenants in which a form of EBITDA is used as a measure of compliance, and we anticipate EBITDA will be used in covenants in any new financing arrangements that we may establish. We believe Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our core results because these measures exclude the effects of non-operating factors related to our capital assets, such as the historical cost of the assets.

We report specific line items separately, and exclude them from Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR because such items are transitional in nature and would otherwise distort historical trends. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR to assess our operating performance and in making financing decisions. In particular, we use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR in analyzing potential acquisitions and internal expansion possibilities. Adjusted EBITDAR performance is also used in determining compensation levels for our senior executives. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operating activities, and other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDAR on a consistent basis from period to period, thereby allowing for comparability of operating performance.
